The Teets Lab at University of Kentucky is seeking a postdoctoral associate with a focus in insect physiology and biotechnology. The successful applicant will conduct research on ecological risks associated with the release of genetically modified insects. Specifically, our lab is interested in the extent to which genotype, environmental conditions, and evolutionary forces impact the effectiveness of transgenic insects used for Sterile Insect Technique. The postdoc may also have the opportunity to develop a side project in his/her area of interest, provided it fits within the general scope of the lab’s interests. For more information on the Teets Lab, visit the lab website (www.teetslab.com).
Applicants should have a PhD in entomology, biology, genetics, or a related field. Experience working with insects is preferred. The start date for this position is negotiable but can be as early as July 1, 2018. The position is for a minimum of two years, provided performance is satisfactory. To apply, please submit a single PDF containing 1) a cover letter summarizing research interests, professional experience, and career goals, 2) a CV including a complete list of publications, and 3) names and contact information for at least three professional references. Submit materials directly to Dr. Nick Teets by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
